Based on Luke 10, a 7 Mile Miracle group is a gathering of 2 or more people, in Jesus name, united together to PRAY for, CARE for and lovingly SHARE Jesus Christ. The groups will spend 7 minutes a day in prayer for their neighbors and their neighborhood.
Begin with a PRAYER WALK through your neighborhood. At least once a week, or preferably once a day, walk through your neighborhood, praying for each home you walk by. Pray a blessing upon the homes as you pass. Get a PARTNER – your spouse, family member or friend.
After a few prayer walks, let your neighbors know casually that you are praying for them. Ask if there is something specific they would like you to pray for. Most people will be glad to give you one or two items to remember. Later, follow up with your neighbor.
Begin building bridges. Serve them and meet their needs. Do random acts of kindness: mow a lawn, buy food, baby-sit, help with minor home repairs, etc.
The next stage is cultivating common activities
like starting block parties, cookouts, and other events. This goes a long way
toward building relationships and showing each neighbor you genuinely care for
them. As you care for your neighbors, you are building relationships that will
open the door for you to share your faith.

You have a GIFT to share: The gift you give each person is the Good News about Jesus Christ. There are many ways you can introduce Jesus to your neighbors.
The NEEDS are great: Because your neighbors are fragmented, disconnected, isolated, or far from God! They need to see God illustrated in the lives of others-in your life!
There are TOOLS to use: Use your times of caring to begin asking about the spiritual condition and beliefs of your neighbors. Materials like the "Four Spiritual Laws" from Cru will help you present the Gospel clearly. Check out https://crustore.org/fourlawseng.htm
Blessed to be a BLESSING: You can be a part of the growing number of people who God is using to see their neighbors come to know Christ. You are in your neighborhood, school, work place, etc., on purpose and for a purpose: to be a blessing.
The POWER of prayer: It has been said, “when we work, we work; but when we pray God works. His supernatural strength is available to praying people who are convinced to the core of their beings that He can make a difference. Something supernatural happens when God’s people pray.”
key is our realization of who Christ is and the power He puts at our disposal
for His purpose. He told the Disciples firsthand that they would be able to ask
anything in His name; then they lived and experienced it. The ministry that
Jesus started on earth continues through us, and through prayer, we receive His
direction and power to help people find and follow Jesus.
Prayer is the essential key to
evangelism; if you are not praying, you are not evangelizing!
I URGE ALL PETITIONS, PRAYERS, INTERCESSION AND THANKSGIVING BE MADE FOR PEOPLE – FOR KINGS AND ALL THOSE IN AUTHORITY, THAT WE MAY LIVE PEACEFUL AND QUIET LIVES IN ALL GODLINESS AND HOLINESS. THIS IS GOOD, AND PLEASES GOD OUR SAVIOR, WHO WANTS ALL PEOPLE TO BE SAVED AND COME TO A KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH.
